Teacher week at Blog Hoppin’ was so much fun this year!!!! And, sheeeeeew!!! What a week!!!! We just finished out 4th week of school already!!!!!!! Man, time is just flying by!! As I take on my 30ish Kinders, things can get VERY busy and I just can’t seem to find time to do anything!!!!! So, this year, my girls and I at Blog Hoppin’ decided not to let Teacher Week be ONE MORE thing we have to stress about!
Teacher Week is SO MUCH fun!!!! Finding new bloggers and teacher friends out there and getting to know each other!!! But, it’s just tooooo hard to post every day!!
So we brainstormed…How could we make this easier for busy teachers?? We decided Instagram was the answer!! This way, we could also include all of the fabulous teachers out there that maybe don’t have blogs!! And, I think it worked out great!!! Don’t you guys???
Here was the layout:
So, here are my pics to sum up the week:
Yep. That’s me!! I’ve been teaching K for 13 years!!! Yikes! Blogging for 5 1/2!!! I’m a Boy Mom of THREE boys. Which suites me perfectly! I love nature and outdoors. Love camouflage clothes. Converse sneakers are my jam. LOVE American Eagle clothes and jewelry! I love dirt rock from the 80s and classic rock from the 70’s. Rod Stewart and The Eagles are two of my absolute FAVES!!! 80’s movies are just THE best!!! #happyendings And, if you know me at all, you know I LOVE Cardinals Baseball! #gocards
Gosh, you guys!!! I LOVE my job!!! It sure can be HARD and even frustrating and stressful at times. But, is there a more rewarding job on the planet?? And, it’s so darn fun!!!! I’m so lucky that I feel like my job is also my hobby. I’m getting paid to do what I LOVE!!!!!! And, yes. ALL 13 years have been in the same school in KINDERGARTEN!!! #luckygirl
I’m a small town country kind of girl and I teach in a small town district. You can see for miles!!! And, there are farms and fields everywhere. Born and raised #southernillinois. We are in the St. Louis Area (hence, the Cardinals fan) When I say I’m from IL, people think “Chicago” Nooooooooo!!!! LOL! More like St. Louis. I wish I could say I was from St. Louis, IL. LOL!!! Anyway, we are the Wesclin Warriors. Our colors are orange and black and our mascot is a Warrior. You may have already realized that if you have been following me for a while. 🙂
And, this is me. 🙂 This is my style, in a nutshell. It seems, that people either love it, or hate it. I get a lot of compliments, but I also hear “that kindergarten teacher looks like a hippie” a lot. Bahahahahahaha!!! I think it’s the headbands I like to wear. Kimonos are THE best!! I have always LOVED leather jewelry. Wraps and cuffs. I’m not very fancy. Kendra Scott?? SUPER cute on you….but, I’ll pass. LOL! And, I have been wearing converse since my High School days (which were a really LONG time ago 🙁 But, I still have some of those shoes. Ha!!!!
Finally, there’s my friends! Gosh you guys!!!! I’m am soooooooo blessed in the friends department!! I have my “Blog Buddies”. Some of THE best teachers in the country and I get to call them my friends!!! How lucky am I???? It’s just so crazy to think that just 6 years ago, none of this had started. I didn’t know any of those people or who most of them were. The internet has brought us together. And, we have formed some unbreakable friendships!!!! I know many of you have similar stories weather it be through blogging, TPT, instagram, etc. How cool is that???? I know there are many more future friends out there that I haven’t even met yet!! Then, there are my childhood friends. Some go as far back as 2nd grade, but most of us became close in High School. We have experienced our lives together….like EVERYTHING. They are my sisters. They are why I am who I am. I love them more than I can even put into words. (yes, I’m that lucky) And, My work friends!!! Again, so, soooooo super lucky to work with some of the best people on the planet. Everyone is so nice, supportive and helpful. We get along great!!! And, I know in a building full of women, that is rare!!! Again, soooo lucky!!!!
